Mom, aunt of missing California boy face murder charges


Two sisters are facing murder charges in connection with the disappearance of a 6-year-old California boy.

Duke Flores was reported missing last week, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Office. 

Duke’s mother, Jakee Contreras, and his aunt, Jennifer Contreras, are both being held without bail. 

Authorities were called to do a welfare check on the boy, and Jakee Contreras said she hadn’t seen her son in about two weeks. 

Homicide detectives immediately started a search for the boy, who has not yet been found.
